Native Orchids in the Garden 
Have you ever imagined having orchids as part of your home garden? We will discuss options and opportunities to integrate North American native orchids into the home garden, ranging from easy-to-grow species and hybrids to more challenging types. The care and maintenance of orchids in the landscape will also be discussed. Scott Stewart, Scott.Stewart@MPFdn.org
